There is no reason why a crop to take
the place of cotton cannot be found, if
our farmers can do as well on their lands
as did Mr. J. W. Mims. This farmer plant
ed eleven rows about forty-five yards long
and the cane cut from that strip of land
gave him 110 gallons of first class syrup;
and the beauty of it is, Mr. Mims is not
ashamed of his syrup and will send the ed
itor some, whom he knows has a sweet
tooth in his mouth. Seriously speaking, if
our farmers would raise less cotton and hell
and devote their attention to cane, grain
and meats, there would be no excuse to ask
for'an extension of the tax collection and
the "hard times" cry would cease.
The colored people are going to celebrate
emancipation day Monday, 2nd day of
January. Edward J. Dickerson, a colored
lawyer of the Aiken Bar, will be the orator
of the occasion. The program will be
quite an elaborate affair. There will be a
street parade with a band of music. All of
the colored societies and lodges in the
county will be in the procession. Then
there will he choir singing, reading of po
ems and the emancipation proclamation,
and refreshments. These annual demon
strations are usually conducted with much
jubilation. This event is in commemora
tion of the thirty-sixth anniversary of Lin
coln's proclamation setting the negro free.

One night last week Mr. Joe Wells had
quite a thrilling experience. He had been
out calling, and when he returned to his
boarding house, just as he entered his
room he saw a great big burglar jump out
of the window with a bnndle of clothes un
der his arm. Mr. Wells at once gave the
alarm and aroused the household, and
when they went into his room they found
the bedding turned topsey-turvey, clothes
of every description and in all conditions
scattered over the floor, and a trunk gone.
This was a very serious dilemma for a
young man to be in, but fortunately Mr.
Wells had on his best suit of clothes and
his pretty patent leather shoes which the
burglar failed to get, and this fact was the
often repeated expressions of consolation
this unfortunate young man gave utterance
to. While the household were standing in
the room like as many statues in an art
galler, a sound came from without and
one of the sympathizing friends was re
quested to look out of the window to see if
the cause could be ascertained. So glad
was Mr. Wells that he had saved his patent
leathers that he was content for others to
look out of the window. After awhile when
the excitement cooled down, a search of the
premises, with Mr. Wells keeping the rear,
losely watching that the burglar should not
dode the crowd and get back into the
ouse, they searched high 'nd low; tracks
were found and they were followed to the
lace where the trunk was secreted. Mr.
Wells found the lost propeity and was nat
urally proud of the discovery, but imagine
is surprise when he returned to the house
to learn that his fellow-boarders had played
a practical joke and the ladies of the house
were wickedly conscious of the whole bus.
Rev. P. B. Wells, the new pastor of the
Mlethodist church, delivered his introduc

The sermon was well prepared and nicely

livered on last Sunday was bristling with
spiritual thought, and the speaker exhib

also displayed a pulpit training which
makes him a gracettil exponent of the gos

Worby Wind. Major Green, Dick Duncan
and Joe "aylor. The murderers escaped
and latec Tnncan and Wind were appre
hended, who corroborated the tale told by
the negro boy. A telegram was sent to the
sheriff of Darlington to ascertain the
whereabouts of Green and Taylor. whose
reply pointed the searchers to Manning.
The authorities at this place were wired
and as a consequence Green and Taylor
were located and shadowed until Messrs.
Kerrick and Adams came here and pointed
the men ont and they were immediately ar
rested and lodged in jail. Green, when
searched, had on his person the dead mian's
watch. They were taken to Orangeburg
yesterday morning. Green and Taylor are
notorious characters and we believe they
belong to a gang of robbers. When Gus
Deas was to be tried for the burning of
Harvin & Barron's store these two chaps
were called as witnesses for the defense,
but were not used. The evidence against
them for the murder of Paulling is very
strong and they will probably never re
turn to this place again.
Last Sunday night being Christmas,
there were no regular services in the Bap
tist or Presbyterian churches and a large
congregation assembled at the Methodist
church to enjoy a Christmas entertainment
in which the Sunday school children took
the leading part. Quite a crowd of sweet
little girls attired in pure white and several
boys crowded the rostrum and altar and
guded in the music by Mrs. Lima Hug
gins, who presided at the organ, rendered
many beautiful songs and recitations frotu
a special Sunday school program prepared
for the Christmas occasion. Near the close
of the program Rev. P. B. Wells was intro
dnced and made a nice address to the chil
dren which was very timely and appropri
ate to the -occasion and much liked by the
audience. Mr. Wells is a fluent speaker and
has a pleasant min-irer of entertaining his
heaters. At the close of the program Mr.
Joseph Sprott, the superintendent, an
nounced that the collection would be espe
cially for the benefit of the Epworth Or
phanage at Columbia, and that contribu
tions need not be confined to money, but
that any articles which could be used by
the orphans would be accepted and appre
ciated. Several little boys passed among
the audience with hand baskets and a mis
cellaneous collection of money, books, .doll
babies and presents of all kinds were given
that wvill please the many little fatherlsa and
motherless children at Columbia. Several
slips were dropped in containing such val
uable contributions as a barrel of flour, a
bolt of canton flannel and such useful arti
cles. The whole affair lasted about an hour
and a quarter and was enjoyed by all pres
Robbed the Grave.
A startling incident, of which Mr. John
Oliver of Philadelphia. was the subject, is
narratted by him as follows: "I was in a
most dreadful condition. My skin was
almost yellow, eyes sunken, tongue coated,
pain continually in back and sides, no ap
petite-gradually growing weaker day by
day. Tihree physicians had given me up.
Fortunately, a friend advised trying Elec

prise, the first bottle made a decided im
provement. I continued their use for three
weeks, and ami now a well man. I know
they saved my life, and robbed the grave

Perhaps the "kickingest" quartermaster
sergeant of the regiment is Henry Appelt
of Company I. The regimental quarter
master hates the sight of him, which makes
him all the more popular in his company,
because it's on account of his everlasting
"growlng" in~ behalf of his company that
makes him unpopular pith Capt. Sullivan,
the regimental quartermaster. Sergt. Ap
pelt was born at Greenport, L. I., just
thirty-seven years ago, and moved to 1)ar
hngton in 1801. He is a brother of "My
Dear Appelt," who is now Senator from
Clarendon county. Sergt. Appelt enlisted
as a private in Company A on 31ay 5 last,
but was rejected on the physical examina
tion on account of a defect in the sight of
one eye, but by persistent effort on the part
of Senator McLaurin he was accepted by
special orders from the war department.
Sergt. Appelt was among the very first to
offr his services to Captain (now Lieuten
ant Colonel) Thompson as a volunteer in
the Darlington Guards, and did his duty as
a private faithfully. The writer was in a
position to know of the service of Private
Appet. He never sought promotion, but
when company I was formed from the sur
plus men in thie independent battalion,and
Adjutant Gonzales was appointed its cap
tain, he asked for Private Appelt to be
transferred to his company, so that he
cold appoint him quartermaster. Sergt.
Appet possesses all the qualities necessary
to make a first class quartermaster ser
geant, ar.d he is one of the best in the regi
ment. He is thoroughly disliked by every
other quartermaster in the regiment, which
is a glowing tribute to his ability to receive
the best of everything for his conipany.
Then, too, he never tires. Even at night
he is on the alert around headquarters, anrd
when he hears of anything that is to he is
sued he is up early the next morning, and
when Capt. Sullivan reaches the quarter
master's department he finds Sergt. Appelt
there. His men all think that his equal as
quartermaster cannot be found in the Sev
entn army corps-and they are about right.

But when it comes to QUALITY, QUANTITY and PRICE
they are not in it.
Remember that we are still holding down the prices
Ion everything in our line. Our stock of
Is now complete, such as Dolls, from 4c to $4.98. Toys of
We have the finest line of Chinaware that has ever
been in this place, such as Cake Baskets and Plates, Choc
olate Pots, Celery Trays, Cracker Jars, fancy Cups and
Saucers, Rose Bowls, fancy Hand Painted Vases, Cut
Glass Water Sets, fancy Ewers and Basins and Pomade
Boxes. We have some very nice Celluloid Goods, too
Dressing Cases, Work Boxes, Manicure Sets, Jewel Cases,
nice Albums, Glove and Handkerchief Boxes, Cuff and Col
lar Boxes, and in fact everything you can mention in the
way of Christmas Presents. Come and see before they are
Now a word about our General line.
We have only a few more pieces of that fine 9e Bleach
that we are running at 5c.
We will sell our entire line of Clothing at cost now.
Everybody knows very well that we have to have
some profit on what we sell, but now.as we are overstocked
on Heavy Clothing we will sell it out at a sacrifice, rather
than carry it over until another season.
We have ab'out 200 Capes that we will give you some
special prices on.
We are still running off our Millinery Goods at cost.
Not that we are going out of the business, but we want to
get clear of our Fall Goods so next spring we will be able
to offer NICE, CLEAN, New and Attractive Goods and not
something that is five years out of date, or any old stock
that has been packed away for ten years.
Our Milliner has gone back North to select and study
the fashions for next spring.
When a lady comes in our store and says she buys five
hats from us (for the whole family) for the same money
she paid for one or two not as good as ours in other milli
nery places in town before we opened, I think that sounds
like we are selling $5 hats for less than $2.50. We have
about 200 ready trimmed hats on hand now that will be
sold cheaper than ever. If you need one come and get it
now AT WHOLESALE COST.
We have about 500 pairs of Jobs in Men's and La
dies' Shoes worth from 3 to $5 that we are running off at
from 98c to $1.89. They are bargains. Come and get a
Spair. We are here for business and here to stay.
